Your First Appointment
When you come in for your first appointment, please bring in any panoramic X-rays taken in the past six months, insurance information, and patient forms (downloadable from our web page.)
New patients will undergo a complete dental exam to determine if there is a condition that can best be addressed with orthodontic treatment and whether treatment is appropriate at this time, in light of the stage of growth. We will discuss your options, potential costs, and payment options as well. We encourage you to ask questions and bring up any concerns so that we can help ensure a high level of satisfaction.
Our goal at the first visit is to have you leave the appointment with a clear understanding of your specific needs and options, and how long treatment will take as well as the costs.
